They have a very attracting sparkle, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
They are beautiful crystal decanters Ginnie... and you made them look so much better with the reflections that you captured....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Peter. You'd have a heyday in that shop/museum!

Fabulous picture, love the DOF and the crisp reflections. A sparkling image indeed smile
We sure had fun in this place.
Ginnie Hart: Hartstikke bedankt, MLMA. This place still amazes me. I want to take all our visitor there because it's more a museum than a shop!
I love the shines / distortions / reflections - it's gorgeous in B&W - brings out the details I'm sure!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, dear Elizabeth. B&W did seem the way to go. smile

Clear as crystal as we used to say Ginnie. Beautifully captured here by your fair hand.
Ginnie Hart: I like that, Chad..."clear as crystal." It would have made a great title. Where were you when I needed you!
Shapely shimmering shining show-offs.

Delightful Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Richard.

The reflections on the glass look great in B&W Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Sarah!
Very nice image Ginnie, but next time try to fill them with some colorful spirits, pls grin
Ginnie Hart: HAHA. I'll gladly oblige you the next time, Juan Carlos. smile
...empty decanters though ;-)
Fine bright glass!
Ginnie Hart: Ready to be filled, Wim! smile Bedankt.
Love all the sparkle in those decanters, Ginnie! Beautiful shot in B&W smile

A wonderful still life; perfect in black/white. The decanters just sparkle - makes me want to join you and Astrid for a glass of wine.
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhhhh. Please come over right away, Sue!!!!! smile Wouldn't that be fun!
Ha ha... Can't wait till the weekend, G!
Let's get real drunk so we can see you dance again. ;o)
Ginnie Hart: Mid-week is kinda like getting over the hump, LC. smile Thanks for the smile.
WOW! An incredible capture! I'm hoping to get to those photos today in my collection. But I know I don't have anything that compares to this one. Beautiful Ginnie!! And even more special that I was there! xoxo
Ginnie Hart: I love that all of these images remind me of your time with us, Robin. I'll never forget it! Thank you.
A triumph in light and glass Ginnie. Wonderful
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, dear, Janet.
Oh yes I really like this Ginnie, what one might call "Candid Tabletop" it not having been set up especially.
Ginnie Hart: You would love this place, Brian. Thank you. smile
Now that's what I call crystal clear. The B&W treatment showcases their sparkling brilliance superbly, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Another good title, Beverly: Ctystal Clear! Chad's was Clear as Crystal! smile Too bad I wasn't in a creative title mode! smile Thanks.

Enough work so far this week or us all? Or enough drink for us all? if it's the former, then yes otherwise NO, NEVER! LOL. I like the sparkle you've captured.
Ginnie Hart: Well, now that you've asked!!!! grin You'd love this place, Alan, and would agree there is in indeed enough for us all. smile

You emptied those bottles during the break?

B&W is an excellent choice here - it lifts the glittering of the glass out.
Ginnie Hart: We all emptied them, Louis. smile Thanks.
So crystal clear Ginnie! Wonderful image.
Ginnie Hart: Crystal clear. I love it, Richard. smile
A fine BW capture and contrasting foreground and background forms Ginnie.

Cooool! Magic capture - love it! Looks a bit like some little shop in Antwerpen♥♥♥
Ginnie Hart: I understand there's a beer shop in Antwerp, the Kulminator, that's similar to this, Luiza, and maybe that's what you're talking about? I want to visit it one day! It's a great place for the camera! smile
Fantastic photograph, I like such ideas. I am greeting
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Zielona.
Such a crisp scintillating image of this set of sparkling clean decanters... yes, lets take a relaxing break and sip some wine Ginnie :^)
